A mother would definitely give everything she’s got to her kids no matter what it takes. This story is just about that, but with a lovely twist. A mother dog’s own puppy, whom she gave her all once when she gave birth to it and the twelve other puppies, gave her the best gift that she could ever receive.
Star was abandoned together with her thirteen puppies somewhere in southern Missouri. Fortunately, the dog was rescued together with her litter. Only nine from the litter survived and soon enough found their loving homes. Star was also adopted by another family in St. Louis after getting medical treatment due to kidney failure.
Shannon Flegle realized that despite the early medical attention given to Star’s kidney, the dog still needed to go for an operation- a kidney transplant. Her health was deteriorating, so Flegle asked the help of another St. Louis family who adopted one of Star’s puppies.
Jenny Murray adopted Elsa, one of Star’s puppies. Murray was ready to help without hesitation, but she had to ask her family first. Luckily, Murray’s kids agreed right away because they wanted their darling pup to be a hero.
The two dogs, Elsa and Star, went to the vet together. Elsa, although uncertain of what she was supposed to do for her mother, seems to understand the situation her mother-pup is in, and she tried to console Star.
The life-saving organ donation was a great success. Both dogs recovered and will now both live normal lives forever. Star had given her all to her puppies and it was time her darling baby pooch returned a loving favor. Elsa had saved the life of her mother pooch.
This story is a great example of stepping up for one’s own family; it’s amazing that even dogs know that.
